I've been a police and public safety psychologist for thirty-plus years, before I had any gray hair.
I now spend my time writing mysteries, teaching, and volunteering as a clinician at the West Coast Post Trauma Retreat for first responders . I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my husband, who is a photographer (he took the photos for all my books) and retired remodeling contractor. In my spare time I travel, cook, take water aerobics classes, and hang out with my friends.
I post regularly on Facebook and Goodreads.
